Willow Trug – Creative Workshop

Create a decorative and functional version of the well-loved garden trug to transport and display your garden bounties; flowers veg. or kindling.
An excellent introduction to basket making. Discover the smell, creak and relaxing rhythm of weaving with supple willow. No previous experience required.
Hannah Ehlert trained for three years in a coppice worker apprenticeship with a variety of crafts people at the Bill Hogarth Memorial Trust. She has run successful creative green wood-working courses for nine years, including; hazel wattle hurdles, Swedish spoons and greenwood carving and baskets and willow structures in the garden. She also runs family and adult Nature Connection courses and works as a qualified Forest School practitioner. Hannah’s classes are fun and sociable, whilst also providing quiet, relaxing time, allowing you to become deeply absorbed in your own project and connecting with natures’ wonders.
This workshop costs £70 plus a material fee of £10. The fee includes a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake and refreshments throughout the day. We like to finish the day with a cup of tea and slice of cake.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn in the beautiful Kentmere Valley at Browfoot Farm, Nr. Staveley, LA8 9JQ
The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley.
